    Norton 360 vs. MS defender and security essentials

    I am using the Norton 360 from a long period of time and now My Norton 360 subscription is regarding to end. Important people told me begin by means of MS defender and MS security essentials for my laptop on which I am using the Windows 7 OS. I have been very content with Norton 360, but he said the MS yield is just as good and free. Does Norton 360 do something like phishing defense or other material these free MS products do not do. Would you advocate switching to these without charge products?

    Windows Defender isn't an anti-virus function; it serves the completely dissimilar reason of detecting and blocking adware and spyware. You need in cooperation an anti-virus application and an anti-spyware application. If you prefer, you can install a third party application for that or you can use a anti spyware program and then disable windows defender. so, first tell me that you want a antivirus or the anti spyware.

    A antivirus which has all the three element in it is the best one and if that comes free OD cost so there is nothing to worry about the viruses, if it has;
    • Firewall
    • Anti-virus program
    • Anti-spyware program(s)

    The Avast is the software that will resolve your problem of the antivirus and this service is free of cost so there will not be a problem in the process of getting it.
